The H P Lovecraft Chronicles
Presented by Michael Sabbaton
Two classic horrors based on
the weird tales of H.P. Lovecraft.
THIS SHOW IS SOLD OUT
It is 1917. When
a strange ivory, carved head comes into the possession of the commander of the U-29,
the boat becomes cursed as it is drawn into a spiralling descent of dissention
and madness. Nightmares, weird feelings and visions of dead sailors begin to
haunt the crew. An explosion permanently disables the U-boat’s ability to
surface and as it is pulled to the depths by an uncharted, underwater current a
demonic, siren song begins to drive the crew towards insanity and death.
The Call of Cthulhu
Based on the original story from 1926, The Call of Cthulhu creates the seminal
horror world of science fiction terror. The
story revolves around three related tales concerning the strange influences of
an ancient, malevolent ‘god’ residing in the depths of the ocean and in the
slumbering minds of men, waiting to rise again to ultimate dominion.
Appealing to a cult audience across an expansive popular culture,
both The Temple and Cthulhu stand as epic influences on the
horror/sci-fi genre. Full of
subtle terror, Michael Sabbaton weaves these character driven tales into one man
tapestries of atmospheric, intimate theatre.

‘In portraying five very different men each
driven mad by forbidden knowledge, Michael Sabbaton cycles from commanding
through unsettling all the way to full-on disturbing, but is never short of
captivating…The Call of Cthulhu
is potent indeed’ The British Theatre Guide on The Call of Cthulhu
‘(Sabbaton is a) formidable actor (who) take(s)
on the different persona and create(s) such a claustrophobic and horror laden
atmosphere. His characterisations and capture of a moment were wonderful. This
show is an amazing attempt to bring the dreadful awe of the Cthulhu mythos onto
the stage. Michael Sabbaton has done a remarkable job’ The Edinburgh Guide on The Call of Cthulhu
